Tennis draws need changing

First rounds of tourney should be seed 1 vs. seed 2 in one half and 3 vs. 4 in other half. This ensures good tennis in the early going and also ensures that top players cannot avoid playing one another. This ensures Nadal plays Federer and if either wins a tourney, they would have to played each other.

Yeah, it ensures that they play eachother in the semifinals instead of the final.. I don't see how that improves tennis at all whatsoever.

Troicki - Djokovic - Del Potro - Kyrgios - Berankis
Cibulkova - Robson - Kirilenko - Azarenka
Retired but always loving Ferrero - Ancic - Kiefer

How does this ensure it? And why does it matter?

Re: Tennis draws need changing

I'd rather see the number 1 and number 2 in the final not in the first round I'd be a little upset. That's the way sport should work, you play the best at the end. why would you change that. deosn't make sense to me

You should suggest all seeds in 1 half and lower-rank players in another half.

(I think that you want Nadal to KO FED and let A-Rod to win the title )

You speak as if there are only two top players around. However much I like to see Feds play Rafa, I ensure you that there's more to tennis than just Those Two. The other players can play pretty well, too (ask Rafa for that matter ).

So I don't think this would be of any help.
